TOTALLY UNIQUE BUILD, SEDAN TURNED ROADSTER CHEVY, NO TOP, INLINE 6, 3 SPEED MAN
Classic lines with modern flair – that's what makes this 1949 Chevrolet custom sedan/roadster such an eye-catching package. But what makes it irresistible is this well-coordinated custom package is available for such a nice price.
From the moment you lay eyes on this one you can tell it's an interesting custom build. But before we dive into the investments that make it quite original, let's remember why this is such a great classic to begin with. Chevrolet's styling was all-new for 1949. This was their first post-war design, and the elimination of the running boards and the intricate sheetmetal with rounded fenders became an instant icon. Today that spirit is given modern flair with a bold shade of teal that gives off plenty of shine. In fact, the bumpers and grille were painted over, and we really like the modern and uniform presentation that creates. This paint really highlights the sleeker profile that has comes from eliminating the door handles, trim, and oh yes, the roof. There was no convertible model in '49. And even if there were, it would never look as sleek as it does here with the roof completely removed and any gaps expertly filled in. But as modern as this classic looks, they left all the best vintage flair with the hood ornament, rear fender skirts, factory wheel covers, and iconic whitewall tires.
Because this car was meant to showcase the interior and the exterior, the inside was given a complete custom tweed and teal setup. Those bucket seats are a terrific upgrade in comfort, which gives you even more reason to cruise around all day in this unique machine. With well-coordinated seats, carpeting, and door panels, this is quite an attractive minimalist package. Plus, Chevrolet already offered a cool streamlined dash in '49, so there didn't have to be too much work to get the this to fit with this custom roadster's theme.
Under the hood is the correct 216 cubic-inch inline-six motor. It's believed to be original to the car, and as you can see from the tidy presentation, it was rebuilt with care. And while the condition of even the belt and wires tell you this received proper servicing, you also should want this because Chevy built its durable reputation on the backbone of this motor. There also is some added growl from this reliable six thanks to the split exhaust manifold that feeds those bright side pipes. And we know you'll love the control that the three-speed manual transmission gives you over this classic powerplant.
Unique, interesting, and absolutely memorable, this custom 1949 Chevy roadster is the most eye-catching classic you can pick up for under $20k. Don't miss out, call today!
